Marinated Rib Eye Steak RUB

I wanted to add a nice Rub to my husbands Favorite Steaks for Father's Day & this is the Blend of herbs & spices that I used. I allowed the steaks to marinate over night, then brought them to room temperature before cooking them.

You can cook them on the grill outside or indoors in a griddle skillet or on a griddle iron. I prefer to use the grill skillet to avoid so many splatters & messy clean up from the griddle iron. The spice blend was just enough to season 6 steaks & the herb Butter finished the steaks off perfectly. Store any unused spice blend in a small spice bottle for later use.

2This is what they look like. We love the flavor of the Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt. Use caution when seasoning meats with salt so you don't use too much. This blend was enough to season 6 Rib Eye Steaks.
